Hi Rik111,

Sounds like you have a malware infestion. I suggest you START HERE and go through the manual fixes on your own and if you are still having problems, then post a hijackthis log in the malware forum

Hello Rocky

Point taken :tazz:

From the post I thought he was going with ctrl / shift / esc

Rik

Maybe if you click start then run, type sfc /scannow then press enter to replace the system files, you need the XP CD and get a blue bar, reboot when the bar goes

You have Limewire......this could be a malware infection......or maybe it is your keyboard! Check and see if nothing is stuck between those keys.

Download and open the following (from Kelly's Korner):
taskmgrenable.reg.

Since this problem is usally caused by malware, you follow the advise of the rest of the guys a go to the Malware forums.
